There is the boatful of young men-and young glrls.^ One, it may be two, of the party, in a spirit of bravado, to distinguish himself, and so bring him to the notice of "my lady's eye," rocks the boat. Again it is done to try the nerves of some timid one of the party. We presume it is meant to be an exhibition of fearlessness. But, nevertheless, it is an exceedingly fooUsh practice, and may cause a serious accident. The man who gives play to this is clearly one who does not uncierstand anything about boats or boating. He acts out of sheer ignorance, and gives no proof of any particular bravery. He comes imder the category of young riders to hounds who consider they are doing great things when they ride recklessly. "They," as an old hvintsruau remarked, "fear notliing because they know nothing."' In the interest of public safety men who comport themselves in a boat in the manner we have described require a serious warning. They should not be allowed the use of what they do not understand. Rocking a boat is a silly trick and, as an obseirver pithily remarked, 'The fool who rocks a boat is of the same class as he who points a loaded gun at you, not knowing that it is loaded." WORDS OF GOOD CHEER* J ORD STRATBCONA was found on hid ninety-third birthday sitting at his desk, where he worked uiitil four o'clock on a hot August day. So says a London despatch."" One marvels at the vitality of Canada's Grand Old Man, and had he lived ceijituries back, no doubt� he would have figured khiongst the names of those men referred to by Cicero in his treatiscon Old Age, who were exemplars to younger men that old age was no iiandicap to men in rendering service to the state. Lord SIralhcona gives as a reason for old age not affecting liim in the normal waj', that it was throujjh hot thinking of it, but just going steadily on with work that one is doinjf, beih^ patient, and not being in a flurry. The Roman Writer and orator would have been glad to have placed this among the sayings of the men he named. But we are not at present confining our attention to virile old age as the outcome of a life well spent. Rather are we concerned with what Lord StraUicona, with all the force of experience of fhe Dominion he has had, speaks af its future. "I have been connected with the Dominion of Canada for 'hree-quarters of a century," he said. "It has, indeed, become a very great country but no*Mng to -what it is destined to become. In the next quarter of a century I believe it will have a population exceeding that of the United Kingdom, and perhaps more. It hits ever>'thing required to make a great nation. Nevertheless T am convinced that it will always remain indiasolubly allied to the motlipr country. Canada is proud of its connection with the En::-I.e." Homer in his epic of the Trojan war declared that the Greek Chief tans better needed one Nestor in their ranks than ten of the Ajax type. And in this modem day the declaration equally applies to us. The so-called finandal stringency possibly assails our beUef in the future of our country. At a time when it is much needed comes the assurance of this Canadian Nestor to urge men to hold on to their faith. We should indeed be foohsh to be despondent. The authorities assert that immigration figures this year will reach 500,000 people. A good harvest is ahead. The Balkan war has fizzled out, and conditions in Europe will soon tend to the loosening of money. Moreover, the man who has lived and grown with Canada, out of the wisdoin of his years, has uttered something in the natiuje of a rebuke to any Didymus who may be amongst us.

(By Percy Shaw, in the New York American) Said the millionaire in bis auto As he sped by a purling brook; "Say, wouldn't I like to drop in there With nobody near to look? Say, wouldn't I like to be young again, And rest in that sliady nook?" Said freckled boy in the swimrain' hole. As the millionaire chug-chugged by; "Say, wouldn't I like to own that rig- An' wouldn't I make her fly? Gee! that's soraethln' most worth llv in' for; I'll go to the city and try.'' A "Wolfe Toddy is the ideal "Night-cap hot water, lemon .and sugar, and a wineglass of Wolfe's Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps, and you have a toddy fit for a King. You will sleep " like a top," wake in the morning with the cold arrested, and a freedom from those aches in the joints and pains in the back. That " Wolfe Toddy," while you sleep, has gone direct to the seat of the trouble-the kidneys. It has commenced a cure which you can make complete by a glass of Wolfe's Schnapps - twice a day for a day or two. Then when you feel "as fit as a fiddle,"don't forget^whal made you.so; get into the Wolfe's Schnapps habit: drink it regularly, and you will not suffer from liver, of kidney troubles. ^ WOLFE'S AROMATIC SCHIEDAM SCHNAPPS is th^ world's, greatest tonic-cnergiser for sluggishness of the vital organs of the body.
